Lovely food, friendly service, tired decor

I visited here with my partner on a holiday. The food was lovely. Very authentic and tasty. The service was great and the lady spoke perfect English. The food arrived in good time and was reasonably priced. My only negative would be the decor of the restaurant which all looked a bit tired and... read more

I’m a big fan of Thai food and Helsinki does have some good Thai Restaurants too but Tamarin unfortunately is not one of them. I have eaten here a couple of times and every time I have experienced a minor disappointment; the food looks great and authentic but the flavors are not just there - everything is a bit bland....

The food arrived in good time and was reasonably priced. My only negative would be the decor of the restaurant which all looked a bit tired and lackadaisical. However, still worth a visit!

I ate after work dish for 11 euros plus spring rolls for 6.50. The dish was nice portion of glass noodles with chicken. Service was quick and friendly enough and the food was alright. Nothing really fancy but still eatable.

Well, worst together with the other Tamarins in the city. Same food almost every day. Spice they use the most is soy sauce and they use it so much you cannot really taste anything else. This will be my last visit to Tamarin.

I just love this place. It is casual and always serves good, authentic Thai-food. Lunch buffet at 9,70€ and my preference is late lunch (until 18.00) for 11 €. Perfect chicken curry. The service is sometimes a bit clumsy, I guess, due to communication problems, but I can overcome that.. Recommended!

Modest but nice place for a curry. Good value and unpretentious. Shy service... in a nice and unobtrusive way.

Tamarin serves the most authentic and tasty Thai food in Helsinki. Service is authentic and they even have ladyboys there (which makes it even more authentic). Have been there for lunch and dinner, and loved both.

I was wandering about looking for a place with Asian food and stumbled upon Tamarin. I was actually really hungry so I ordered a small mango salad and a rice dish (semi hot with 2 peppers as a "warning"). The waiter asked if I wanted both together or separate, which I truly appreciated. Both dishes was brought to me rather... More
